Kids get hurt at school, on the schoolyard, all the time. Fortunately most of those injuries can be helped by a band-aid.
However, serious injuries can and do occur involving children and schoolyard surfaces or play equipment, such as swings, jungle gyms or monkey bars and slides, especially when they aren’t properly built, maintained or supervised. If your child has suffered a serious or catastrophic injury in the schoolyard (even at a school your child does not attend), you may need help protecting your rights.
Reasons to File a Case
If an accident involving a school has affected you or someone in your family, it may result in severe or permanently disabling injuries, even death.
At the same time, the odds are that you’ll also be facing very large insurance companies, each of whom employ armies of lawyers, whose job it is to save their clients money by doing whatever they can to prevent claims from being paid or get them settled for as little as possible.
Although insurance companies should pay claims promptly and those payments should be enough to cover your entire medical costs, lost income and whatever else is needed to make you as whole as possible after your injury, the reality is that these for-profit companies will do whatever they can to make sure that does not happen. If they’ve got an army of lawyers to fight for them, you need your own team of accident attorneys.
Why Heimberg Barr
Dr. Steven Heimberg possesses a very rare and dangerous (for his opponents) background. He is a medical doctor as well as a lawyer. This allows him to recognize the full extent of medical issues resulting from schoolyard injuries, uncover hidden facts, decipher complicated medical records, recruit top medical experts, and simplify and communicate the full impact of life altering injuries to juries so that they also understand and can award just damages.
Dr. Heimberg and the Heimberg Barr attorneys have decades of experience facing down insurance companies and their lawyers. They know the medical and legal issues inside and out and they know how to hold insurance companies accountable. They know what it takes to get insurance companies to do their job and pay claims that should be paid. That knowledge combines with a passionate commitment to justice and a rigorous work ethic to form the foundation on which Heimberg Barr is built.
